The US House of Representatives will discuss next week a resolution, calling on the Chinese government to end its crackdown in Tibet and to enter into a substantive dialogue with the Dalai Lama.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who along with members of the bipartisan Congressional delegation met the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government-in-Exile in India recently, introduced the House Resolution.

In a statement on Thursday night, Pelosi said, 'Leaders around the world have called for the Chinese government to take steps to end its crackdown on peaceful Tibetans and enter into a dialogue with his Holiness the Dalai Lama.'

She said the House of Representative would now have the opportunity to join the international chorus of calls for peace and freedom.

'I look forward to the House making a powerful and unified statement in support of the fundamental freedom and dignity of the Tibetan people at this critical time,' the Speaker said.
